This is one of those restaurants that you feel like all the food was bought from a frozen food outlet, and just reheated. I am a non-food snob, but this food was simply awful. I actually regretted having paid for this "food". This katsu was...More

I've eaten at the Little Tokyo several times and it's an incredible deal. You get a lot of value for the money. For lunch, I'll typically buy the Bento Box, which for $10 is a fantastic deal. I don't like having too much sugar at...More

For $22 we got edamame, soup, salad, tempura, and beef and chicken teriyaki for 2, all of which was delicious and plentiful. Because of the reasonable price, we also ordered sashimi and the dragon roll, which was fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented. They have a...More

This restaurant consistently provide good food quality and superb service. The bento lunches are convenient and tasty. Again, admire the management for the consistency, not an expected quality anymore of a lot of other restaurants.
